Planning Issue related with Calendar

Hi PP Guru,

Appreciate if you would be able to provide guidance to me on this issue as below:

I setup Factory Calendar 24 X 7 (which mean included Saturday & Sunday) in the system. Because Production Plant running 24 X 7,

but purchasing department are only work 5 days per week. (Which not works during weekend)?

Gary did setup one planning calendar - PK, I did the testing and found if the working day in SCAL maintain 7 Days the planning calendar can’t excluded the Weekend.

My question:

1) How can we use planning calendar to exclude Weekend so that Plan Order are not generate during weekend (excluded Saturday & Sunday).

2) There’s option to choose the period Not a working Day (highlighted in Red) – Is the working day must according SCAL factory calendar?

I'm running out of idea, perhaps not using Planning Calendar to exclude it.

Any idea please?

    Hello Kent,

    Define Planning Calendar as below:

    Select 'If period start is not a workday' as 'Do not displace'.

    Select Calculation Rule as - Workdays.

    Put 'Calculation Start Date' as Any Monday e.g. 02.07.2012

    Put Period Duration from Start Date in Workdays as '1'.

    Once you define like this system will calculate only Monday to Friday as workday for generating planned/purchase order...

    Check & revert.

    • Hi Kent,

      - You can use lot size-PK, in which system will create planning elements (planned order/PR) only on Weekdays (as per planning calendar).

      - Yes, Maintain Planning Caledar in materials related to 5 working days only.

      Hope this will work for you.

      Also, you can explore my second reply about BAdI- MD_CHANGE_CALENDAR (Changing Calendar for requirements) if any additional more complex requirement needs to achieve.
